Family-Friendly Frights: Tampa Hosts Movies at Water Works Park

It’s that spooky time of year when the temperature drops below 85 and the stars shine just a little bit brighter at night. While we are all for the Nightmare on Franklin Street and the Haunted Trails that offer jump scares galore, we’re also down for a not-so-scary Halloween experience.
Beginning October 7, the City of Tampa will screen family-friendly movies that capture the fun spirit of the holiday. Food trucks and concessions will be on hand to help attendees satisfy their sweet tooth and wicked cravings. All movies start at 7pm and are free and open to the public at Water Works Park, 1710 North Highland Avenue.
